Man dragged screaming and bloodied from United Airlines flight takes legal action

He has promised to review the airline's passenger-removal policy. 'This will never happen again on a United flight.

"We are not going to put a law enforcement official to take them off", Munoz told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Wednesday. 'We can't do that'.

They said they want to make sure the city and the airline preserve surveillance video showing passengers boarding Sunday's Flight 3411 to Louisville at O'Hare International Airport. United spokeswoman Megan McCarthy said Wednesday that the passengers can take the compensation in cash, travel credits or miles. Video posted to Facebook and Twitter showed the passenger, David Dao, as he was dragged out of his seat and down the aisle of the plane after refusing to give up his seat.

Munoz said he felt "ashamed" of the incident which was video-recorded and went viral.

April 12, 2017Video surfaced earlier this week of security personnel violently dragging a passenger in Chicago from his seat after the man refused to give up his spot to an airline staffer.

"To have somebody pay for a ticket, reserve a seat, be seated and then dragged off the plane physically by law enforcement officers at the direction of United (Airlines) - it's outrageous", Christie told CNN's "New Day" on Wednesday.

Likewise, Chicago's aviation department has said only that one of its employees who removed Mr Dao did not follow proper procedures and has been placed on leave.

For one thing, it needs to block Chinese businesses from continuing to sell missile parts and nuclear technologies to North Korea. Their comments came a day after a failed missile test by the North and two days after a huge display of missiles in Pyongyang.

Three of the officers involved in the incident have been placed on administrative leave, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation.

Fearns said that all went smoothly until after he had boarded the plane and was sitting in his seat, awaiting takeoff.

In his most contrite apology yet, Oscar Munoz said Tuesday that no one should be mistreated that way. And when the flight gets close to its departure time, seats assigned to passengers who haven't shown up can be given away.

The company's shares fell 4% Tuesday and the airline's CEO, Oscar Munoz, originally defended his employees before realizing his error and apologizing. When no one volunteered, it selected several passengers to deplane. "We are also reaching out to the passenger to talk directly to him and further address and resolve this situation".

Other passengers on Flight 3411 are heard saying, "Please, my God", "What are you doing?" He claimed that if the officers used force to get him off the plane, he would "make a lawsuit against United airlines".

For Chicago, it is another public relations nightmare following a crime wave in parts of the city that has been highlighted by tweets from President Donald Trump. "I was not concerned for my safety, nor that of my toddler's or for my pregnancy, until the police were called aboard our plane to remove him".
